Why We Exist
Our goal is to cultivate an atmosphere for growth. We are their Neighbor, their Coaches and mentors, their family and friends. We commit to caring and challenging every student and adult who is willing to take a step forward. BLOC aspires to open pathways for everyone’s future.
One of Cincinnati’s only urban city ministries, BLOC’s biblical foundation is Ephesians 4:4-6 (NIV)
“There is one body, and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called: One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” Click here to read Ephesians 4
- We are joyfully passionate about the hope we received from Jesus Christ. He is Who inspires us.
- We encourage and challenge others so they might find hope: and in turn, become the Leaders of their community’s change as they invest hope in their friends and family.
- We desire to build a strong urban community not from the outside, but from the inside by helping our neighbors grow.
- We work where the needs are greatest, and the neighborhood resources smaller than the need so that BLOC brings added benefits, rather than duplicating services
